cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 12, 2008
dark beer but not like the black stuff, creamy head, notes of chocolate, burned malt and very milky, sweetness and bitternes in nice balance, good stout, but needs some power, it is like they dont dare, which is a shame.

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2008
Medium creamy shiny deep offwhite everlasting head. Excellent cling. Deep dark red-brown translucent body. Intense perfumy milky dark chocolate aroma with vanilla notes. Dry-and-sweet vanilla and chocolate pudding taste with a dry, powdery feel to it. Harmonic and balanced. Long aftertaste, very distinct and clear. Not very complex, but still has more than enough to interest. Very nice, but definitely not a session beer. (0.2l draft, Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin.)

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 16, 2008
Straordinario l’aroma, proprio cacao senza alcun segno di femminea dolcezza burrosa, si beve al posto del dolce e possibilmente riempie di più di esso. Deliziosa, da bere senza fretta, parlando delle imprese di Pirro.

Very pronounced chocolate aroma when poured. A lovely smooth stout with a strong sweet chocolate taste on the palate. A great stout that you can drink all day long.

evilempire (147) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
scored in Porter House Temple Bar. Delicious, smooth, highly chocolatey brew, slight roastiness comes through towards the end, several pints of this made for a good night

jbean (110) - Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Draught at Porterhouse Dublin, March 2007 (from notes). Black with nice tan head. Chocolate is very noticable in the aroma, and the flavor is the most intense chocolate flavor i’ve ever had in a beer. Not just notes of chocolate, but like drinking a very good dark chocolate. Incredibly creamy, and very well balanced. An excellent stout.

A Mes rate: Nitrotap @ you’ll never guess where. Saw Man U beat Everton 4-2 while supping this. Sure my mood has influenced my rating slighty but this was excellent. Black, almost opaque with a solid off white creamy head. Coffee, malt and rich dark chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar to the nose and wonderfully tangy and rich. Certain I could not drink more than the half I had but I enjoyed every sip.

harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
On tap at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Enormously choc velvet. I mean it’s like drinking a Belgian choc truffle chocolate. Question is, is it any good? Well there are 2 answers. The choc loving part of me says, "Yes, this is the most intense choc beer I’ve ever had and I love it." The beer purest would say "It’s a bit thin and grainy and it’s a bit crude after half a pint and you wouldn’t want much more."

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Tap. Very nice black body with some beautiful dark red colouring. Creamy head. Fantastic aroma with dark sweet chocolate. Excellent. Amazing flavour of dark sweet chocolate and mocha. Not only does it taste chocolate, it tastes like a very good chocolate. Wonderfully balanced flavour. It is amazing how well this heavy chocolate taste goes together with the rest of the beer. A lasting finish which keeps the best of the flavours intact and ends with a characteristic bitterness. (Porterhouse Dublin, 17.03.07)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
Nitro Tap@The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Smells really nice. caramel, vanilla, chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Palate is smooth, perhaps too smooth, thanks to the nitro, which was the only thing i didn’t like about this beer. Creamy mouthfeel, and as aarleks notes, a liquerish like quality, like Baileys or something. Some subtle roastyness in the finish. Really tasty, but would have been better if it was out of a regular keg (or even cask!!!), as the nitro killed it a little bit. Otherwise, no complaints, i had fun drinking a couple of pints of this.
